    No doubt the US population as a whole is just lost, if your population believes in insane psycho babble, mad wing nut theories, and crazy dudes on talk radio.. you know there is a problem.

    So, you have that going, and then nearly every employer out there wishes to re-instate slavery. I mean, i look around at a lot of random companies and all i find are lawsuits for unpaid wages and people being mis-treated. I blame the stock market and a global economy, the only interest of anyone in profit and any cost.

    type CR england into Google.
    Look into ITT Tech... horrible..
    GM made campaigns against their own employees saying they were at fault for the companies short comings....
    There is LOTS of dirt on nearly every US company out there.

    All the while wages drop for people, so our consumer based economy continues to fall, while the higher ups "recover" via hack and slash at the cost to the employer. I dunno, these are messed up times, i have a friend who just got her bachelors in accounting. Works for DOW for $15/hr .... That is messed up, DOW is HUGE. We have real problems, and among other things, i'm pointing fingers at the baby boomers. WAY to much greed and me, me, me.

    Sorry... its just crazy, all of this is just difficult to swallow sometimes.. I feel like i am living in a third world country sometimes.

    I suggest, if you haven't already, look up Global labor arbitrage.

    The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Money should be considered a means, and not an end. Unfortunately, capitalism seems to be the ideological position that people are things one uses in the pursuit of capital.
